for the shuttle landing which was going to try to land today. we are going to come across north america, which that's pretty rare for them to take that flight path. that means that folks would be able to see it but not today. the rains have pretty much stopped but still a lot of low-level clouds. a lot of fog as well. cape kennedy not going to see that thing land today. next attempt will be 24 hours from now. 74, the high in atlanta. it will be 68 degrees in washington, d.c. 64 degrees in new york city. 59 in boston where they are running the marathon right now. >> yes, that is about to get under way. i believe the main part is about 40 minutes away. the weather is cooperating. >> i think everybody has patriots day off in boston. >> just massachusetts and maine have patriots' day. we have to work on that in georgia. >> we do. >> as he just mentioned, "discovery," will have to scrap it for today because of the weather. a lovely picture of it. they are trying to make their way home. this isn't because of ash. it is because of the weather. give you updates and when they are going to try to bring
for wall street to mean it's going to be bad for everybody in america. but, boy, there are things in there, gloria and jessica, that you wouldn't have guessed would be contentious. >> well, first of all, let me just talk a little bit about what senator mcconnell is doing on the floor. essentially they found the boogie man, the boogeyman is goldman sachs. the new boogeyman. the other boogeyman was bailout, right? and said it's all about bailouts. now it's goldman sachs, so goldman sachs comes to the hill and said we actually support financial reform, then ipso facto, it must be a bad thing, right? and mitch mcconnell can then go on the floor and say, uh-oh, goldman sachs wrote this bill. well, goldman sachs didn't write this bill. and it seems to me that he's just, you know, searching for anything to justify -- >> yeah. >> -- the delay. >> yeah, it's getting a little weird. jessica, you were saying ultimately there's some way in which the democrats are going to get the bill that they want or are they going to have to change it to accommodate the republicans? >> they don't think they'll have
have to freeze all activity in the adoptive process for the united states and for america. >> we've done some follow up trying to find out. there hasn't been a formal statement or decree or law sign that's saying, in fact, adoptions are frozen, tony. that's an important distinction. this may be more of a rhetorical posture right now after a case that has really infuriated a lot of russians. what the russians are calling for is for a new bilateral agreement to be signed to manage, better manage the large number of adoptions of russian children by american families. that russian official says it's possible this could get put together within three to six months and the u.s. embassy tells us that a delegation will be arriving within the coming weeks and that they're hoping to hammer this treaty out and the u.s. ambassador tells me it could be a matter of weeks or just months before the new proposed bilateral adoption agreement would be signed. >> let's dig deeper here and marty, we'll get to you in just a second in tennessee, but ivan, do we have any idea, an inkling of how this more

, it's the best coverage in america. >>> as we mentioned, tomorrow marks the 15th anniversary of the oklahoma city bombing and bill clinton was president at the time. on friday, he told cnn's wolf blitzer that today's political climate reminds him of the 1990s, because of the rising level of angry rhetoric, especially from fringe groups. conservative radio host, rush limbaugh, immediately pounced on clinton's comment, calling it an invitation to violence. the former president was asked about it just today on abc's "this week." >> one leader of one of these groups said that all politics was just a prelude to civil war. and then the politicians, of course, who have not been that serious, but a lot of the things that have been said, they create a climate in which people who are vulnerable to violence because they are disoriented, like timothy mcveigh was, are more likely to act. >> just a short time ago, i spoke with cnn contributor john avalon about bill clinton's remarks and the rise of dangerous rhetoric on both sides. >> president clinton was very clear to say, look, we want
and called for death to america after u.s. troops fired on a bus, killing at least four civilians. military officials say it was still dark this morning when troops tried to get the driver of that bus to stop. when he didn't, they started shooting, fearing that that bus was a threat. we'll follow up on that later on. >>> a big move for the vatican. for the first time ever, the catholic church is making it clear that bishops and other clergy should go to the police if they suspect abuse. the vatican insists this has long been part of the church's policy. many people have had doubts about that. but it posted a new guide on its website which is available to everyone, spelling it out specifically. >>> most states have a limit on the amount of time you have to report sex abuse among children. now, however, connecticut lawmakers are fighting to take the statute of limitations off of the books there. but they are running into opposition. >>> the roman catholic church in connecticut is coming out and coming out strong against new legislation to get rid of the statute of limitations on child sex abu

from citi, j.p. morgan and bank of america, and all reporting strong numbers. like them, goldman made out because of more trading activity and that is goldman's bread and butter. think about stocks, think about bonds and think about what the market has been doing so the economic recovery really helping them out here. last year was a very tough comparison. so that was a bad year so it makes it easier for this period and wall street is still worried about those sec charges and goldman shares are under pressure and they're up 1.5%. the dow has been doing a little flat line dancing and the dow is up 11 points and the nasdaq is better by 11 at 2491 and we're in the green for now. >> not familiar with the dance you're talking about, but i get the idea. >> on the goldman front, the sec charges that they're facing, does this put anybody else on notice that the sec might be coming after you? >> that is exactly the fear on wall street is that if they're looking this deep to find anything, are they going to go after other financial firms and that's why we saw financial stocks plunging on friday

program that he did hear that. >> john lewis, who president bush called one of america's great heroes, i don't think anyone wants to be in the business to call john lewis a liar. i think we need to take people at their word. we need to restore a sense of civility, stop demonizing people who disagree with us, and stop getting in denial that the fact the fringe has been blurring with the base in the past year. and there are principled disagreements and arguments that should be had in politics, but we need people to stand up to the extremes on both sides, and stop the cycle before it escalates even further. and there's a special responsibility for folks to stand up to the extremes on their own side. the reluctance to do so is a sign of cowardice. >> thanks to john avalon. >>> pope benedict meets with some of the victims of a sexual abuse scandal rocking the roman catholic church. what did he say to them. >>> and why tomorrow may be the last chance you will ever have to get a glimpse of the space shuttle. let me show you. there's a new 24-hour heartburn formula that's different. it's called

of the things mr. martin talked about. he called the people in the southland of america, some of the most honorable people in this country american terrorists. and said if the south had won the war, we'd be in the fields now. that's just poppycock and playing on the feelings of people who want to say slavery and end all dialogue. it's a great thing that the governor of virginia did when he declared confederate history month, because now we have the tell the southern side, which is never told, with the advent of industrial revolution. and i'm very surprised with virginia, because in virginia, up until the days of the war, those men in the legislature in virginia working very hard trying to find a way to get real emancipation to that slave. they knew, white men in the south knew a man was not free unless he had an ability to take care of himself, unless he had land, a home for shelter and some money and possibly some slaves of his own. you know, i resent the fact that this man, like -- i don't know whether mr. martin is from the north or where he's from, but the same virnlg crossty these fo
